Donor Privacy Policy

Adirondack Council will never share donor giving information with other organizations. However, like many other groups, Adirondack Council may exchange its donor mailing list with like-minded organizations and list some donor names in our Annual Report, and some donors are required to be identified in public filings we make with the Internal Revenue Service and government agencies that regulate charitable organizations. All mailings requesting support include an opt out option by means of a check box. Donors that would be listed in the Annual report are also given the option of making their donation anonymously.

This data is used to verify identity and execute the financial transaction. Additionally, phone number and email address information may be used to contact visitors if there is a problem with the transaction.

Adirondack Council may use service providers (such as merchant banks and ecommerce integrators) for the express purpose of conducting financial transactions. Personal information is kept private and secure and is not sold, rented, or traded to third parties. It is important to note that credit card numbers are used only at the time of the transaction, and are not stored following the conclusion of the transaction unless a transaction is selected that occurs on a regular basis. For transactions that recur, credit card information is stored in an encrypted format.
